Location of starter/inhibitor relay for 1994 nissan pickup
I'm having the intermittent starting problem with my truck. I have replaced the battery and ignition switch with out any results. I purchased the larger of the two starter relays as advised but I can't locate where it's at. The parts guy at the nissan dealer told me it was under the hood on the right side but I don't see where its at. Please help.

Check the harness for any missing wires, its the main bundle of wires under the dash. If all is in place then check the fuses to see if any needs to be replaced. If all are tested and working, check the relays located in the main engine compartment. If all are intact and working, check the ground wires that connect to the frame of the engine and body or directly to the negative of the battery. The main wires you need to see that are connected is on the alternator, starter, and battery.
starter inhibitor relay is located in the relay box just behind the
headlight on the driver's side. It is Nissan part 25630-9662 and has
six pins. There are two normally closed contacts that turn off cruise
control when you start the engine. The other contacts are normally open
and close to energize the starter solenoid when you start the engine.
Power for the relay coil must pass through the transmission
reverse/neutral safety switch when the transmission is in Park or
Neutral. This switch is located on the side of the transmission and is
reached from underneath on the front, driver's side. (Remove the
plastic protective covering from underneath the engine in that area-it has about 10 screws.)

new ign switch
park inhibitor possible, but checked where is the starter relay if there is one? what else do you suggest? Is there an immobiliser?
I had the exact same problem, I replaced the starter, it worked a couple more times and then nothing. I completely checked the entire starting/ignition circuit and found a problem in the clutch inhibitor relay circuit. When I jumped the relay the truck started. Tracing the circuit back to the clutch switch I found that the little blue plastic landing on the clutch pedal itself had a hole in it where the clutch switch would fit right into it. Thus when you depressed the clutch the system would not see the switch close, thereby not energizing the clutch inhibitor relay allowing the truck to start. Long story short, my problem and maybe yours was a $1.50 piece of plastic on the clutch pedal landing.
